Security Council to meet on Palestine statehood

“The UN Security Council will meet on Wednesday morning to consider the Palestinian request for full membership of the world body, a step that would see it recognised as a state in its own right.
The Security Council will consider referring the Palestinian request, made last Friday, to a special committee on new admissions, said Nawaf Salam, the Lebanese ambassador to the UN and current holder of the rotating presidency of the council.
 “The council will hold a formal meeting on Wednesday to hand over the application to the committee,” Mr Salam said. The committee is likely to comprise representatives from all 15 members of the Security Council.”
